The first time I heard Jason Robert Brown’s ‘Someone to Fall Back On’, I thought ‘I want to learn how to sing that.’ A much admired Broadway composer, this was on his 2005 album ‘Wearing Someone Else’s Clothes’ and shows that not only can he write beautiful songs, he’s got an amazing voice too.
I love how this song builds and builds, the melodies in the piano accompaniment, and the sentiment. It’s also a true Broadway song where the person singing it goes through a transformation during the song.
A *much* better quality of both video and sound recording than I’ve ever managed on my own (thanks Stevie!).
